The Filipino Community Council of Victoria (FCCVI) led by its Chairperson Perla Luetic will lead the Filipino delegation at the annual Australia Day Parade 2016 on 26 January 2016.

Luetic told The Philippine Times that since there are several ethnic communities who will be joining this year’s parade, the Filipino community is allocated only 40 people to join the parade.

Assembly time will be at 10am at Burke Street, Melbourne. The Parade will start at 11.00am following the Australia Day Official Flag Raising Ceremony at the Melbourne Town Hall.

Thousands of Australians and individuals wearing different costumes will march down Swanston Street. They represent more than 100 community and cultural groups. The spectacular parade sees people waving their flags as they display their costumes, colours and movements.

Australia Day is celebrated every year in Melbourne and Victoria with the Victorian Government bringing a festive atmosphere of fun activities and free events.

Those interested to join the Filipino community delegation will be accepted on a first come first served basis due to limited slots. Please contact, Mercy Protascio of FCCVI on (03) 9687 9011.
